$400,000 settlement is more than 4X the initial insurance company offer
BOWLING GREEN, KY, November 30, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers has secured a substantial victory for a Kentucky single mother and son who suffered severe injuries after a car wreck in Russellville, Kentucky, acquiring a $400,000 car accident settlement. This $400,000 settlement comes after an initial insurance company offer of only $95,000.
The victim was traveling through Russellville, KY with her son in the passenger seat when she saw a speeding commercial van approaching from a side road as they reached an intersection. She realized quickly that the van was going to illegally run the stop sign, and to avoid the collision, she switched lanes but could not maneuver further due to another car in the left lane, leaving the vehicle trapped directly in the vans path. The van struck the victim's vehicle on the passenger side, causing significant force that resulted in injuries, including bruising from the seatbelt.
Paramedics and police evaluated her son at the scene, releasing him to work, while the injured woman, initially in mild pain, proceeded to work with the help of a coworker. As the adrenaline from the wreck wore off, the victim realized the severity of her injuries, particularly escalating lower back pain. Her son also developed a severe headache post wreck. Recognizing the need for a thorough medical evaluation, the victim and her son sought help from a local emergency room.
Even though there were eventually signs of progress in the victim's health, she was still far from fully recovering from the collision. Continuous treatment was necessary for her to manage everyday activities, and the hobbies she used to enjoy had become significantly more challenging, if not entirely impossible.
"It was clear that our client was suffering both physically and emotionally as a direct result of the negligence of the van driver. The initial offers made by the insurance company were simply unacceptable," said Lee Coleman, Attorney and Founding Partner of Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers. "She deserved the proper compensation to support herself and others who relied on her, and our team was able to ensure this happened."
After an initial lowball offer of $95,000 from the insurance company and intense negotiations, Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers obtained a $400,000 settlement – more than four times the amount that was initially offered to her.
